Plans to create a gay and lesbian quarter in Liverpool city centre are being discussed by council leaders.
The area is already home to several gay bars
Proposals include closing a section of Stanley Street to traffic to promote the area, which already has several gay and lesbian bars.
The motion has been put forward by councillors Steve Mumby and Paul Brant, who say it would add to the nightlife.
Mr Mumby said it was part of a larger plan to promote Liverpool as a lesbian and gay friendly city.
He said plans were based on the Manchester experience in and around Canal Street.
If the plans are passed, the council would pedestrianise Stanley Street between Dale Street and Victoria Street.
Councillors said there would have to be full consultation with businesses before anything was done.
